I am just wondering how much preparation time is required for writing ACP. I want to schedule the exam first so that i will be motivated to prepare.

I wrote my PMP exam with 45 days prep but i was very stressed due to work and preparation. I want to ask forum members who already wrote ACP a reasonable time for preparation. I have working exp on Agile frameworks like Scrum (i am a CSM), TDD, XP, Kanban being a Java/J2EE Dev but however i think for the test i guess there is a lot i don't know and need good prep.

I appreciate your replies :)

Hi Manjusha,

You might get a better response in the ACP forum:

Repost there and hopefully you get some good feedback.

I have moved your question into our PMI-ACP exam forum. No need to repost it...

I have personally not yet taken the PMI-ACP Exam, but based on the lessons learned that I read, the time it takes people to prepare for and take the exam is roughly the same as for the PMP Exam... so about 8-12 weeks, depending on your available study time per day and prior knowledge of the topic.
